How to Snooze an Email on Gmail for Computer or Smartphone

Unable to handle your Gmail inbox, due to too many received emails or insufficient time? Just snooze the emails to postpone them. The feature is very useful when you don’t have enough time to view or reply to an email. You can also ignore an email with the Gmail snooze feature for some time and get notified when you want. Snoozing an email postpones it for your chosen time as well as removes it temporarily from your inbox. This makes your emailing disciplined as well as helps you not to forget the important emails. You can also access a snoozed email in between whenever you want. This means Gmail has given you the complete controls. Moreover, the feature is available on all platforms. You can use it to manage your Gmail inbox on the computer as well as on mobile.
